ROKU ULTRA: Automated Voice reads aloud all the information on the screen

Jump to solution

I was getting familiar with my Roku Ultra and somehow enabled a setting for an automated voice to read aloud all the information displayed on each page.  Anyone know how to disable that setting?

Sounds like the "Audio guide".

At some point you probably hit the * key four times in a short period of time. This is a shortcut that toggles the "Audio Guide" feature on and off, so four quick presses of the * key should turn the Audio Guide feature back off.

To deactivate the four-* trigger shortcut altogether use menu path, Settings > Accessibility > Shortcut (in the Audio Guide section) > Disabled
